Nevel has a long-term agreement with Atria to supply heat and steam to their production facility at Nurmo. The energy supplied annually is about 70 GWh.
In response to the changing and growing demand for domestic food, Atria is making the largest investment in its history in the expansion of poultry production in connection with the Nurmo production facility. The cooperation includes the production of the energy needed by the new poultry factory.
We are not an easy client
– In terms of energy supply, the Nurmo production facility is not unusual; our energy needs are highly predictable. However, we are not an easy client, and the vulnerability of our processes makes us particularly demanding. We require extremely high security of supply and we can’t allow any disruptions.
– We chose Nevel because we were looking for competitive security of supply. An accomplished partner brings reliability and, as a major operator, Nevel brings expertise in both operations and supply of fuel. We are very happy with our choice and our partnership.
As part of the contract, Nevel has built a new 13 MW steam boiler plant in the area. Atria’s old heating station still functions as a back-up and helps balance peak loads. Nevel is responsible for the entire energy supply, meaning operations, maintenance, and supply of fuel.
Uninterrupted energy supply
Proven security of supply
Agile implementation of measures promoting energy efficiency
Target to achieve Atria’s carbon neutrality by 2035
A smooth partnership
Open dialogue is one of the things that make the partnership work so well. In Nurmo, Nevel is essentially part of Atria’s organization. A proactive approach to handling and reviewing issues and seeking solutions has played an important role in the partnership. Any incidents have also been handled with sufficient transparency. This has provided a good foundation for developing operations further.
In collaboration, Atria and Nevel have identified and prioritized development targets that will help Atria’s food chain achieve carbon neutrality by 2035. The cooperation model enables agile implementation of measures promoting energy efficiency.
“Our focus is on high security of supply, as an uninterrupted supply of energy is vital for our processes.”
